Ivan Grilo: Art that presents loving and political themes to Downtown Miami. Understanding that walks has a historical connection to the practice of thinking, the artist invites people to activate conversation and another way of perceiving the city and the world. The55Project is delighted to presents Ivan Grilo as the first solo project of the 2018/19 season, “Escribe una carta de amor” (Write a love letter) in collaboration with Mana Contemporary Miami and Downtown Miami. The project initially will use poetic sentences to activate subjective spaces in Downtown Miami creating the possibility of public interaction, promoting new possibilities for political and social discussion while activating conversation beyond the artist's native Brazilian territory, expanding while allowing borders to dissipate. For this installation Grillo has created a set of bronze sculptures in his signature style all bearing poetic phrases. The text comes from a fictitious love letter, which can be read as a political manifesto. Or, conversely, the phrases arise from a fictitious political manifesto that can be read as a love letter. In a gesture of inclusion for the diverse communities in Miami, the text appears alternatively in Portuguese, Spanish, Haitian Creole and English allowing each demographic to engage and be integrated on their own terms. "I am very interested in this ambiguity of phrases, which permeate politics and affection. In addition to this, there is the idea of presenting a work far from the space of the white cube, that allows to reach people completely alien to the art, but never alien to the politics or to the love.” - Ivan Grilo. “Ivan's artwork not only represents Brazilian art, it brings a very true and sensitive narrative of the current political moment of the country.”- Flavia Macuco Pecego, from The55project. “Escribe una carta de amor, (Write a Love letter) is a series of sculptures formed by phrases that will be only discovered by the people that walk-through Flagler Street. This gives continuity to a tradition that took place with the surrealists in Paris and that also comes from the situationists and the notion of a psychogeography as the intertwined space between territory and the experience. Additionally, the cartography of this walk will be traced by the surprising encounter with these bronze plaques, which have written on poetic phrases in English, Spanish, Portuguese and Creole with the idea of marking other mental paths to those that discover them, between all the other or The program will start with an artist talk followed by a walk, October 24, 25 and 27 @ 4:30pm at the point that was the first place of Aluna Art Foundation.

TUCUMÁN: THE EIGHTH ARGENTINE BIENNIAL OF DOCUMENTARY PHOTOGRAPHY INAUGURATES

Ph: Filipe Berndt

On October 6th at Galería Leme, in São Paulo (Brazil), inaugurated "⌾" -symbol that refers to the sun- a collective exhibition commissioned by Catarina Duncan (Rio de Janeiro 1993), constituted through the work of seventeen artists who use symbology as a language. The work will remain in the gallery until November 3rd.

 

The exhibition aims to build, through all it artworks, an imaginary where the symbology is overlapped with the traditional language to explain and criticize political issues. Also, establish relationships between the human and empirical and the hidden and unknown.

 

The symbol that bears the name of the exhibition - "⌾" - explained curator Catarina Duncan, is an appropriation of an icon used by a diversity of cultures to represent the sun and the manifestation of the divine. "Brazil is going through a very delicate moment and I like to see this show as a way of resistance, although it was not the intention of the curator," said Tatiana Gonçales in conversation with Arte Al Día and added: "Catarina opted for a more transversal research on multidisciplinary artists: Mahku - Artists Movement Huni Kuin (Brazilian indigenous ethnicity), Abdias Nascimento (revolutionary, politician, poet, etc), Camila Mota (Teatro Oficina’s actress), etc. "

 

Catarina Duncan plays with the contradictions that manifest the interpretation of the same symbol, in this case the Sun. On the one hand, for some this is an immense source of light that brings life and allows the perception of things. On the other hand, the same symbol can be interpreted as a circle or a point: synonyms of perfection (a third level of meaning that emerges from one of the many interpretations). In this sense, it was  Cabelo’s artwork Ovo Bomba (2018) which gave rise to the name and central axis of the entire exhibition.

 

Regarding the symbols, Carl G. Jung wrote: "What we call a symbol is a term, a name

or image that may be familiar to us in daily life, though it has special connotations beyond its obvious and

conventional meaning. It implies something vague, unknown or hidden to us."

SINAPSIS, BY COTTY OXENFORD

To judge an artistic expression is not an easy thing. It is about judging the subjectivity of another within one's sensitivity. Therefore, the text is nothing more than an opinion of another opinion. And reading this is only the multiplication of that process. This is how this review should be read, because that is what the solo exhibition Sinapsis, that takes place in OdA Espacio de Arte (Buenos Aires, Argentina), is all about.
